McMaster Health Forum | Simulations Course

 

Enrol in our simulations course (HTH SCI 4YY3: Health Forum Practicum) to learn more about how health decisions are made by participating in simulated hospital board, federal cabinet and World Health Assembly meetings. Students will learn about the types of decisions that can have an impact on health, the roles of different organizations involved in making these decisions, and the various influences on these decisions. Students will also get the chance to see how difficult decisions are made, and experience the pressures that are brought to bear on decision-makers.

Meeting preparation includes conducting literature reviews and documentary analyses about a health challenge and the context in which a decision about it will have to be made (e.g., hospital catchment area, country or WHO Member State), and preparing briefing notes to inform meetings. Students will take on different roles in different simulations.

This course grew out of the Forum’s commitment to prepare action-oriented leaders to address pressing health challenges creatively. Please contact us at forum@mcmaster.ca for more information.
